Additional Information:

We accept referrals from GPs for patients with appropriate ENT conditions (as listed). This enables patients to receive care near their home. Waiting times are short.

The clinic is staffed by a GPSI, a nurse, an Audiologist, a secretary and a Manager/Head of Service.

Patients are sent a letter confirming the appointment date and enclosing instructions on how to get to the clinic including the main bus routes to the clinic.  After each assessment the patient is sent a letter detailing information about the condition, the assessment and treatment and the need for any review. This is copied to the GP and any other professional involved in the patient's care. A full clinic record is held at Moss Side Health Centre.

Each patient in the clinic has a full history taken and recorded and patient's ears and/or nose are examined. The GPSI may also remove problematical wax or infection from the ears, or examine the patient's nose during the appointment.

Blood samples and swabs are also taken and X-rays arranged if needed.

Hearing tests are available as part of the Friday morning clinic if indicated during the assessment.
